Sometimes when we are out and about. Far Guy will ask Far Side “Have you ever been on that road?” If she says “No” most of the time we get to go..being the adventurers we are. On Sunday Far Side said “Follow those Public Access signs..see where it leads, maybe we can walk Chance there.” Well that brings me up and at’em and out of my slumber in the back seat. Walk and Chance in the same sentence means I am going to get out of the car! I usually sleep in between cows and horses. If I am really dozing on the job..someone usually hollers “Horse” or “Cow.”
Ten miles later following the little brown Public Access signs we arrived. It was not quite a two track road toward the end.
We wondered what lake we found. Far Side said “It looks more like a river than a lake.” You would think that they would put up a sign..you know the ones with a red X..you are here.
The options were Blueberry and Shipman..they kinda knew where they were. But they had never been there before. We consulted with Cousin Chuck..he said we must have been at Little Blueberry…he used to work for the DNR and knows the name of every lake in the area!
The water was cold..and neither of them ventured in with me. Far Guy found a stick to throw..a stick..I don’t “do” sticks…I was a bit of a grump about that stick. I retrieved it a couple of times..then Far Guy did the unthinkable…
He threw it in the deeper water where I would have to swim. I can swim..but only with Far Side and she was not swimming that day. She finally said “Enough already.” I guess barking at sticks does no good..all the dogs across the lake began to bark. It was like a symphony:)
